I have tried so many bronzers from drugstore to high end but I always watched out for a natural looking bronzer and finally I got this bronzer in my IPSY Bag (was lucky enough !). It’s a GREAT bronzer and I got this in the shade Park avenue Princess which gives a natural glow, not orangey and artificial looking.
You can use it for an all over sun-kissed glow or use it to define and contour your cheekbones. I use it mostly for the latter and apply with my E.L.F Small Tapered Brush along the hollows of my cheeks. This creates a wonderful contour and makes your cheekbones really pop! It has got a Semi-Matte texture and a really nice natural finish. I even put a swipe or two of it on my eyelids – really brightens the eyes when you want to go natural. I use bronzer on a daily basis, along with my skin care products, lotion, and foundation. Although I still do use some products containing the chemicals, when it comes to something I use every single day, I want to be paraben free.
I have been using the Tarte bronzer for a couple of months now and I LOVE it. I love that its completely matte and best of all waterproof! It blends very easily and looks very natural.
